How Spring's Top 7 Womenswear Trends Stack up in SF

By


1970's style dominated the spring collections. Our resident fashion expert, Lauren Goodman, tells us how the top trends stack up in San Francisco.

1. Cut-Outs. The season's hottest fabric reminds us of mesh, perforated to perfection. Super chic in leather and suede. LG says: The new sexy.

2. Evening Midriff. Who needs a gown when you have a svelte crop top and a gorgeous skirt? This look is blowing up the red carpet. LG says: Rock your body.

3. Botanicals. Florals of a modern species are in bloom this psring. Marni and Celine cultivated some particularly stunning varietals. LG says: Looking fresh, girl!

4. Suede. Suede for spring is a very new look (that is to say old—circa 1970s). Extra points for made-in-the-suede dresses, T-shirts, and head-to-toe looks. LG says: Soft focus.

5. Military. Fatigues, parachute silk, camoflage, khaki of all shades, utility pockets. So protest-chic. LG says: Attennn-tion!

6. Sandal Boots. The knee-high gladiator sandal was totally ubiquitous on the runways. Not the easiest look in our oft-chilly clime, but it will majorly up your game. LG says: The statement shoe.

7. Festival Girl. Hippies forever—even for high evening. Make love with lots of texture, knit vests, trippy prints, patchwork, tie-dye, and eyelet. Dries Van Noten staged a sit-in. LG says: Naturally.
